You're either being sarcastic or smoking crack.

No I think windpower is the renewable alternate energy of the future, along with GE and Shell and many other large corporations and financial institutions. It is already at 40 gw installed power and has maintained a 25 percent growth rate for about 10 years. That is doubling every 3 years.

The only limiting factors, are Greenpeace complaints that they shred birds, and the fact you can't build them within site of land owned by the Kennedys or other "Limousine Liberals".

Kerry, accordingly, has proposed "a new Manhattan Project to make America independent of Middle East oil." In January, he explained part of the plan in Vinton, Iowa. "I'm setting a goal for America," he said. "By the year 2020, 20 percent of our electricity is going to be produced by alternative and renewable fuels. And a lot of that is going to come out of Iowa." Listing ways to improve the "quality of life of the rural community," Kerry said: "Wind farms, obviously, is one other thing." But, it turns out, not for Nantucket. Source

Do you have any financial ties to the windmill industry? Stock ownership, perhaps, or working for a manufacturer or supplier? Are you a lobbyist trying to get the taxpayer subsidy reinstated, or own land where you want a windfarm to be built?

It seems so unlikely for any conservative to be an advocate like you are for windmills, an alternative source of energy that isn't economic unless taxpayers are forced to pay the producers more than the market price for any electricity produced.

Uh, that's peak gigawatts. Most of the time, those contraptions just sit there. (The ones that aren't broken, that is.)
